Museums, human rights and memory: a transnational and comparative case study
Thursday, 31 July 2014 at 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Milgate Room, AD Hope Building
Presented as part of the Literary Studies Seminar Series. This thesis deals with the display of historical memories in contemporary human rights museums. It aims to explore how conflicted pasts are being framed through the lens of human rights, using four institutions from around the world as case studies. Given the current debates surrounding post-nationalism and the emergence of a transnational solidarity community, particular consideration will be given to the processes of social memory formation that unfold between the poles of the national and the transnational.
SEMINAR

Thursday, 31 July 2014 at 4:00 PM - 5:30 PM

This paper draws on Christopher McNally's (2012) concept of 'Sino-capitalism' to analyse the complex set of forces that have shaped China's urbanisation experience to date, as a prelude to understanding the challenges facing the central government as it embarks on its 'National New-type Urbanisation Plan' for 2014-2020, which places urbanisation at the centre of China's modernisation drive and its ongoing efforts to rebalance the economy towards domestic demand.
